We stayed here for a 40th birthday celebration. The hotel is lovely, with a perfect location just across from Jackson Square. We will definitely stay again. The rooms are a bit small, but this is a New Orleans hotel, and that is always to be expected unless you are staying in some newer place, which doesn't offer the same experience as a hotel in the Quarter. The price was great, and Michael at the bar was awesome!

We have traveled to New Orleans three times in the past year, (recently August 2014), however, this is the first time we have stayed at the Omni Royal Orleans. Everything about this hotel is "top notch." Our room was available for early arrival and we were provided the room we requested, which had two balconies and was absolutely beautiful. But, the best feature of the hotel, aside from its location and large room, was the front door staff. They are the best I have encountered in a long time; courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. The roof-top pool, with room service availability, as well as a full service deck bar was also a nice feature. The only suggestion regarding that area are more seating options, since it gets crowded prior to the dinner hour. Also prior to our arrival I made an online request, which was answered promptly via email by a manager, who provided her contact information and honored our request. We will only stay at the Omni Royal Orleans when visiting New Orleans from this point forward! Can't wait until our next trip in December!

We stayed in August for our first anniversary. I booked a balcony room, and informed them when I booked that it was our anniversary. When we stepped into our room we were greeted with ice cold champagne! What a nice surprise! We sat on our gorgeous balcony on the 5th floor and watched the sunset with a lightening storm and drank champagne. The pool was clean, the view unbelievable and the staff were so kind. Everyone was alway happy, and would do anything for us from giving advice on where to eat to directions to getting us a cab. Our flight didn't leave until late in the evening and the concierge set up a rack for our luggage to be held, and even added to it was we shopped. The room was spotless and bed so comfortable. Only complaint is that our neigh or were coming and going at all hours of the night slamming the door repeatedly. Nothing an afternoon nap won't fix! We will never stay anywhere else in NOLA.

Everything about the Omni Royal is magnificent. It's location in the heart of the French Quarter and not on Bourbon Street makes it an ideal place to stay as far as proximity to attractions and excellent dining spots. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable and quiet. Service is friendly and professional. Lovely, lovely hotel!

I booked our stay for our wedding. Upon arrival, we questioned the possibility of viewing an upgraded suite to allow for all of "the girls" to get dressed the day of our wedding. When the front desk receptionist heard this, she said..don't worry and upgraded us the day of our wedding. She then sent us champagne and strawberries the night of our wedding! It was perfect! My parents and several other family members also stayed at the hotel and all had a great experience. The front door man was the best for asking where to go to do things, eat, etc. He always helped and always with a smile. Everyone was exceptionally helpful and caring. We certainly made the right choice to stay at the Omni Royal Orleans and when we return to NO, we know where we will be staying. The rooms were clean and tidy. The mattress was so comfortable and we heard little noise from other guests while trying to sleep. We can't say enough and recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the French Quarter.

While it does have some drawbacks (not the nicest staff at the pool) the location and pool deck are unbeatable. We spent 1/3rd of our time just lounging around chatting with other guests at the rooftop pool...which was incredible. Other than that it's pretty standard. I would request a street view room unless you are on the 7th floors, because then you will be staring at a cement wall. Not perfect but the best you are going to get, I think.

Our experience at the Omni Royal Orleans was far beyond our expectations. The staff was focused on service and extremely and earnestly engaging. The room was immaculate and quiet, despite the French Quarter central location. We loved it and the proximity of anything we wanted to see or do.
